A Note from Our New Membership Coordinator

Posted By Rebecca Guest, Thursday, January 28, 2016
Updated: Wednesday, January 27, 2016
Hello!  My name is Rebecca Guest and I am excited about my new role as VAM’s membership coordinator.  I first joined VAM as a student member in 2014, while interning and focusing on Virginia’s Top 10 Endangered Artifacts program.  This past year, I transitioned from a student member to an individual member.  From participating in the inaugural student research session at last year’s VAM conference to attending workshops across the Commonwealth, my membership has given me opportunities to succeed as an emerging museum professional and network with fellow VAM members.  

As I step into my new membership role, I am expecting a remarkable year for VAM and its redesigned membership program.  With the new program, any museum with VAM membership will get full member benefits for all its staff, volunteers, and board members.  Through one membership, museum members can take advantage of professional development, career services, and other resources.  In addition to museum membership, VAM also offers membership options for students, individuals, consultants, and businesses.  All membership levels include free or discounted access to: 

• Virginia Certificate in Museum Management programs 
• Annual Conference registration 
• Professional development workshops 
• Career support through VAM 
• VAM Voice quarterly museum news magazine
• Legislative alerts
• Virginia Museum Advocacy Day and AAM’s Museums Advocacy Day
• VAM job board

I cannot wait to meet new VAM members and engage with our current members.  I look forward to serving this amazing museum community. If you have any questions about member benefits, or need to discuss which membership is right for you, please feel free to contact me via e-mail at
